I am the designer and developer of the Unix interface procedures to the Icon programming language ( The extensions have been folded into the "next generation" of Icon called Unicon.

Icon is in the public domain.

I also wrote and maintain plotfoil (, a free (GPL'ed) airfoil section plotting and generating application. I have been using Linux since 0.99 PL12 (1993) and Unix in various forms since 1982.

I have written about Icon in the Linux Journal. Clint Jeffery and I are working on a book on Unicon which is almost done; look at the Unicon project page if you want to see the pre-publication draft.
These days I also dabble in Plan9 and OpenBSD.
